Hi I'm Skyler

I grew up in Las Vegas. I love the game of football. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am Skyler, I love to play football because I love the life lessons that I have learned, and the life long friends that I have made. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family doing who knows what. We could have fun doing just about anything. I Grew up in a Mormon home and have stuck to what my parents have taught me because I can feel it within myself as I read, ponder and pray that these things are true.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I have been a member all my life but I have just recently come to know for myself that the church is true. like Joseph Smith, I asked my father in heaven if the book of Mormon was true. After I felt such a peace come over me that I knew it was true. I don't know how to explain the way I felt but I knew at that time that God was speaking to me. I am a Mormon Because it makes me so happy. Life is to short to be burdened down with regret and guilt. Jesus Christ is the answer to these problems and through him I have been able to find peace in knowing that my family can be together forever if I live up to the promises that I have made to him. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, if nothing else makes me so happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be more like my savior Jesus Christ. I know that I wont ever be perfect in this life, but the constant invitation that he leaves with us is "come follow me," and "come and see." As a Latter-Day Saint I strive to live my faith by striving to become more like him. I strive to do what he would have me do. I used to get really down because I would always make mistakes. I later realized that he isn't asking us to be perfect, he is just asking us to try. He just wants us to get up when we fall and try again. This I have come to know, is how I can be more like him. the only time you fail is the time that you quit trying. Don't ever give up on yourself or on Jesus Christ. I know that he loves me more than I can even comprehend. I know that he loves you even more than you could comprehend.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Skyler
We believe that the Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead. We believe that God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are 3 separate and distinct beings with their own role and purpose in bringing about Gods work here on the earth. We believe that unlike God and Jesus Christ the Holy Ghost does not have a body but is a spirit so that he can dwell within us to testify to us of truth. The Holy Ghost testifies to us of all truth. When we are seeking to find out what is true and right in this worth the Holy Ghost can and will whisper to us that Jesus Christ lives and all other truth. When we seek to gain knowledge from our father in heaven he bestows that knowledge to us through the Holy Ghost. We can know the truth of all things by the power of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a gift that God has given to us to lead us back home to him. The Holy Ghost is here to comfort us teach us and bless us. Show more Show less
